Republicans Continue to Obstruct

No Algorithm Needed

Well, this takes some brass:

Responding to President-elect Joe Biden’s nomination of Neera Tanden to lead the Office of Management and Budget last week, Cornyn said her “combative and insulting comments” about Republican senators on Twitter created a “problematic path.” He went so far as to characterize Tanden as “radioactive.”

A Republican, even a really dumb one like Sen. Cornyn, claiming mean tweets are disqualifying is really the nadir of hypocrisy. Just scroll through Hair Füror’s timeline.

Oops, spoke too soon:

Some Senate Republicans are refusing to commit to confirmation hearings or votes for Joe Biden’s Cabinet picks while election challenges from President Trump and others continue to play out.

You mean they want to see if they can overthrow the democratically-elected president before they can confirm his cabinet.

“As long as there’s litigation ongoing, and the election result is disputed, I do not think you will see the Senate act to confirm any nominee,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told Axios.

  • Sen. Ron Johnson, who holds sway as chairman of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, said, “There’s still some pretty troubling irregularities that haven’t been explained.”

Timing: The Electoral College votes on Monday, but some lawmakers predict Trump’s legal fight will continue.

  • The chatter comes as a growing number of House Republicans are backing an effort by Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) to challenge Congress’ election certification next month.
  • With the support of just a single senator — who Trump’s fiercest House GOP allies are courting — Brooks could force the House and Senate to debate and vote on the challenge. That could drag out the typically ceremonial process of counting electoral college votes.
  • Johnson told Axios that while he met with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and a group of House members about this effort, he is still gathering information and hasn’t committed to being that senator.

We are really in for a rough patch. It’s not just that amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell doesn’t want to help Americans during a pandemic and economic collapse, the Republican Party is working to sabotage the US Government (and democracy itself) before Handsome Joe Biden is even sworn in.

This is sadly predictable and unprecedented. They at least waited for Obama to put his hand on the Bible.

  2. They at least waited for Obama to put his hand on the Bible.

    They now know that was a mistake, one they won’t make again.

    Welcome to 1862. I believe the dumb fuckers are going to gin up their civil war no matter what.

      With the dreadful prospect of over 28 million households getting thrown out on the street after x-mas since republicans refuse to agree to providing needed stimulus checks, I think the left can easily overwhelm the few rascal brigades that will foolishly brandish firearms in defense of their false prophet, fat nixon. Sooner or later those racist cockroaches need to take a long dirt nap.

        Historically, a lot of wars claimed to be started by poor nations wanting a rich nation’s stuff were misrepresented, or so I read some decades ago. I think it was a paper written up on “psychohistory”, taking Asimov’s fictional field of study and doing actual analysis of what really happened in rich-nation-vs.-poor-nation wars. It was basically colonialism dressed up as self-defense, mostly.
        So, statistically, if TX secedes they are less likely to attack their former-fellow-Americans (of the U.S. of A. variety) than to contribute refugees. Not that TX has no resources, but those resources are likely to be required for taking care of their own citizens.

    And yet handsome Joe continues to foolishly believe that republicans are our friends and that he can work with them, which means conceding on every important issue & allowing them to throw non-stop tantrums over the next four years. FFS, What a dope.

      I suspect Joe is saying what he knows the rethugs want to hear, so when he pushes his programs, and they resist, they’ll look like the obvious badasses they truly are.
